    Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

    I've never used any primer before, and I've used this one for 3 weeks. It does not do anything, and I feel that there is no difference with or without the primer. Some areas on my face skin were not so soomth, so I hoped that this would make the surface smooth, so the look after applying foundation would look smooth.

      Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

      This product does what it says it will. It was a little drying for me and I've used better primer products with salicylic acid in them. It's a good product for the money, but I will splurge next time.

            I wear this daily and pair it with the liquid halo Smashbox foundation. The pair together stays on when I sweat in the hot summer heat in Texas so that's a nice bonus! I am used to sweating all my makeup off after being outside only a few minutes, but this keeps my face from being super shiny when sweating. Though not totally matte when sweat is involved, still decent. Great for the price.

                • Q:

                  I have extremely oily skin and find that primers with silica in them tend to separate and make my skin even oilier. Will this primer do that on my skin?

                    A:

                    No, this primer is ideal for oily/very oily skin that is prone to breakouts, and it should not separate on your skin. Apply just a pea-sized amount to your entire face for best results. The salicylic acid and mattifying powders will help to keep your skin shine-free and to prevent breakouts and pore congestion.

                    A:

                    ULTA brand products are never tested on animals. We do not claim that ULTA brand products are vegan, as some may contain animal-derived ingredients such as carmine. ULTA Matte Prime is not formulated with any animal-derived ingredients.

                    A:

                    This product contains 1.5% Salicylic Acid, so if you're dry in some areas, we'd recommend applying a lightweight moisturizer underneath this product to further help balance your skin.

                    A:

                    This product is a milky translucent color that applies and dries invisibly. It is suitable for use for all skin tones. It is not color correcting, but it provides a beautiful matte finish.

                    For redness correcting, we recommend ULTA Flawless Prime (Item #: 2220412), which features a green tint to neutralize redness and even skin tone:
